    28 yo and 1st pregnancy
    Height: 5'3"
    SW: 115
    Goal: 25-30 lb. gain

    Week 17: 116 (+1)
    Week 18: 117 (+2)
    Week 19: 119.5 (+4.5)
    Week 20: 120 (+5)
    Week 21: 121 (+6)
    Week 22: 123.5 (+8.5)
    Week 23: 124.5 (+9.5)
    Week 24: 124.5 (+9.5)
    Week 25: 125.5 (+10.5)
    Week 26: 126.5 (+11.5)
    Week 27: 126.5 (+11.5)
    Week 28: 128 (+13)
    Week 29: 128.5 (+13.5)
    Week 30: 129 (+14)
    Week 31: 129 (+14)
    Week 32: 129 (+14)
    Week 33: 129.5 (+14.5)
    Week 34: 130 (+15)
    Week 35: 130.5 (+15.5)
    Week 36: 130 (+15)
    Week 37: 131 (+16)
    Week 38: 130.5 (+15.5)
    Week 39: 130 (+15)
    Week 40: 130.5 (+15.5, cumulative)

    Not 100% sure what I weigh today because I was up all night with cramping and forgot to weigh in, but this is an average from the past week. I really hope this is my last update before baby because I am DONE. This definitely-not-labor-but-still-painful stuff is for the birds.

    Sorry to be negative. I'm running on no sleep and at work instead of having a baby, and I'm just very, very tired. I have an ultrasound tomorrow to make sure everything's still good, and I guess we'll take it from there.

    Height: 5' 11"
    Age: 35
    First Pregnancy
    Goal to Gain: 25-30lb

    Starting weight: 169 lb
    Week 14: 172.8 (+3.8, +3.8)
    Week 15: 176.0 (+3.2, +7)
    Week 16: 178.4 (+2.4, + 9.4)
    Week 18: 179.4 (+1, +10.4)
    Week 19: 182 (+2.6, +13)
    Week 20: 181.2 (-0.8, +12.2)
    Week 22: 185.4 (+4.2, +16.4)
    Week 23: 185.8 (+0.4, +16.8)
    Week 28: 191.0 (+5.2, +22)
    Week 29: 195.8 (+4.8, +26.8)
    Week 30: 195.6 (-0.2, +26.6)

    I don't know why, but I had this notion in my head that I didn't want to surpass 200 lbs. That is clearly not going to be the case. Mentally trying to adjust and just focus on making sure baby is healthy. So much kicking lately! My feet and ankles are suuuuuuper swollen. Any tips on how to alleviate that? I try to elevate when I get home from work, and I just ordered some Epsom salts to do foot soaks.

    @wantoldme I hope you and baby are ok - sending good vibes your way.

    @jennifergmcnamee hope the ultrasound went well - baby will be here in no time, I'm sure of it! You are so close now!

    week 34: 231 (+21)
    week 35: 232.6 (+22.6)
    week 36: 233.2 (+23.2)

    Trying to mostly maintain till the end since I am already over my 20 lb goal, but seems like I am fighting a losing battle against swelling these days. Hopefully can keep it under 25, but I guess it is what it is. Have another ultrasound next week since they were worried about little guy's size at the 32 week one. I think I am more tired of doctors appointments than anything at this point.

    Week 30: 174.4 (3.4/20.6)

    Whew, big week jump this week, but I have been pretty hungry the past week so I'm not surprised at all. Hoping next week it isn't as bad, but we are going away this weekend to San Francisco with family so I guess we'll see. I also injured my foot 3 weeks away and have been not moving as much as it is so painful to walk on. It's FINALLY starting to get better, so hopefully being more active will help that too.

    @wantoldme I hope everything is okay. I also heard upping your water intake can help for amniotic fluid. And 46% to me seems right in the middle, is that not good? Maybe I just don't understand, but I feel like that means about half measured are bigger and half smaller?

    Thank you @artgalchitown and @RAxB I am good. I was wrong baby is in the 40th percentile. I heard it incorrectly when they left the voicemail but when I spoke to the doctor she said baby is in 40th percentile.

    I'm just trying to eat and drink more which is hard because I get full so fast.

    Week 8: 201.7 (+1.7)
    Week 9: 202.8 (+1.1/+2.8)
    Week 10: 204.5 (+1.7/+4.5)

    Week 16: 208.1 (-0.2/+8.1)
    Week 17: 210.5 (+2.4/+10.5)
    Week 18: 211.2 (+0.7/+11.2)
    Week 19: 210.9 (-0.3/+10.9)

    This whole tracking thing is helpful (sometimes!!), I had put on too much weight in the 1st tri and was worried would gain way over my recommended by the end, but can see that things are slowing down/plateauing off which is great! Only 2.6lbs in 5 so back to a steady 1/2 lbs per week. Obviously will have weeks with bigger gains here and there, but nice to feel make in control, especially when it's come from more healthy eating and less ice cream!

    @4legsRbetterthan2 good luck with the scan! You have done so well with keeping your weight in check so I'm sure your little man's size is all genetics as you say :)

    It can be tough since the kiddo starts taking up your whole abdomen!. Make sure you eat lots of calorie dense foods (nuts, nut butters, full fat dairy, feel free to be a little more free with oils and butter in your cooking). Try to stay away from "diet" foods if you aren't hitting your calories needs.

    HI Everyone! I am very excited to be here.

    Height: 5'7
    Age: 30, 1st pregnancy
    Goal to Gain: 20-25
    SW: 153.6

    Week 8: 148.6 (-5.0)

    I was still in weightless mode for a majority of the time before I realized I was pregnant and switched to maintenance at 4 weeks. This week has been tough with eating right, I can't stand the sight of some food. I'm still managing to get decent macros though.

    Yikes I need to slow down with this weight gain! Hubby has just brought a new bbq so we have been having a bbq almost everyday which has been great as I haven't had to cook but not so good for my weight!

    I haven't logged for a few days, so figured this weigh in would be horrible, guess not ....

    I think the cold spell we got helped me de-swell some :) yay for normal ankles, the cankle look just doesn't do it for me

    Thanks I'm trying to eat more. Who knew eating and gaining weight could be so hard?

    @jennifergmcnamee congrats. She is beautiful.

    Thanks for the congrats, everyone. Here are my stats at one week pp for those curious. I had an epidural so retained a lot of water right after birth that I think is mostly gone now.

    Age: 28
    First pregnancy
    Starting weight: 115
    Weight at 40 weeks: 130.5
    Weight of baby: 6.5
    Weight at one week pp: 117

    You are all doing great, and I don't need to tell you but it really is all worth it.

    A little late checking in this week, gonna see if vacation helped or hurt next week I suppose! I'm going to try and start swimming at the gym tomorrow to account for my injured foot that has taken me out for 4 weeks now. I thought it would be a lot better a lot sooner so it's time to start looking into alternative workouts! A month off is too long!

    @jennifergmcnamee congrats on your little girl! She is lovely (look at all that hair!!!) and it sounds like you are both doing well!

    I picked up a cold on vacation last week and felt terrible all week. I thought I was still eating plenty and logging it all, but maybe need to step it up? She seems to crowd the top of my uterus which then crowds my stomach and even with small meals I feel full all day long and until it empties I truly cannot eat anything else.
